Lithuanian anthem lyrics (English translation)
Lithuania, our homeland,
Land of heroes!
Let your sons draw their strength
From our past experience.
Let your children always follow
Only roads of virtue,
May your own, mankind’s well-being
Be the goals they work for.
May the sun above our land
Banish darkening clouds around
Light and truth all along
Guide our steps forever.
May the love of Lithuania
Brightly burn in our hearts.
For the sake of this land,
Let unity blossom!
